BunsenLabs 8.2 (Hydrogen) RC1 Live ISOs on bootable USB

Hi
I copied BunsenLabs 8.2 (Hydrogen) RC1 Live ISO to a bootable USB stick (unetbootin)
but when I launch the graphical installation I hit a wall after the keyboard selection:

"Your installation CD-rom couldn't be mounted. This probably means that the CD-rom was not in the drive. If so you can insert it and try again.
Retry mounting the CD-rom?
<yes>  <no>"

Could anyone provide advice? (I do not have acd rom drive)
thank you

Re: BunsenLabs 8.2 (Hydrogen) RC1 Live ISOs on bootable USB

I usually make the USB using either Rufus or Winimage (under windows) or dd under Linux, I've yet to have a failure using

sudo dd if=filename.iso of=/dev/usbdevice bs=4M; sync

If there's an obscure or silly way to break it, but you don't know what.. Just ask me

Yes, this is most likely the problem. cp is another alternative on Linux...

I have the same issue... when the message: "Your installation CD-rom couldn't be mounted..." appears, I pull of the USB-stick and put it in again and the installation continues without further flaws.
Give it a try,

Does this work for installing a bootable system?

I tried that just now, got a failure to boot related to missing syslinux file, or something along those lines. The message was to brief to read before it dropped into hdd boot.

Edit: I used unetbootin and had no problems. So that's a 50% reported hit rate for running BL Live, eh?

I'm now posting from inside Hydrogen Live. Wheeee!

Post the exact command you used and (with your USB inserted) the output of...

sudo fdisk -l

You shouldn't use a partition number. You should have used:

dd if=Downloads/00-Torrents/bl-Hydrogen-rc1-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4M; sync

You have written to a partition, not the drive. Try

of=/dev/sdc

Re: BunsenLabs 8.2 (Hydrogen) RC1 Live ISOs on bootable USB

Nope, you need to leave off the 1. Use either...

sudo cp Downloads/00-Torrents/bl-Hydrogen-rc1-amd64.iso /dev/sdc; sync

Or...

dd if=Downloads/00-Torrents/bl-Hydrogen-rc1-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4M; sync

Re: BunsenLabs 8.2 (Hydrogen) RC1 Live ISOs on bootable USB

I haven't installed a system since late 2012. My bash has become soft and poorly defined.

On the other hand: unetbootin worked for me!

That worked for me! I had previously tried two different usb thumb drives and burned them several different ways including dd and unetbootin from both a mac and a pc. I could run the live version but every time it failed the same way when I went the install route.

Thanks Torq.
